Growing regulations and technology advancements are pushing utilities into the future faster than ever. Utilities are faced with the challenges of new business models, regulatory and customer pressures to upgrade aging infrastructure, and navigating the move to the digital grid, all while delivering safe, secure, and reliable energy service at a lower cost to customers today. These challenges are compounded by:
- A limited supply of IT/OT talent
- Sun-setting of legacy systems
- Rising customer expectations
- FERC mandates for reliability standards
- Subject matter expertise constraints and skills gap
Our experts bring operations business, functional and technical expertise to lead utilities in navigating the complexities of the digital grid and delivering on operational performance objectives.
Grid Modernization Strategy
Innovative utilities, even those without significant regulatory pressure, recognize the importance of future preparation. Faced with increasing penetration of distributed energy resources (DER) and shareholder demands for increased revenues, utilities must develop a strategy that helps position them as a leader in this transition and maximizes the right opportunities for new business. We have been helping utilities develop the modernization strategies since 2008.
Grid Technology Portfolio
AMI meters were the first of many waves of new data streams made possible by advanced hardware and software technologies. To deliver on the promise of those programs and to prepare for the distributed grid, utilities must evolve nascent technology strategies that have created business silos and technology islands.
Modern Grid Enablement
Making tomorrow’s vision into today’s reality requires a utility organization who has the capability to integrate new, agile resources. Resources that are familiar with the new core systems and technologies, as well as the operational impacts on
the business processes associated with their deployment, are in demand.
